You might find some useful hints for that error message here?
It could also be your AVG E-mailing scanning setup?

The message is too long to post here, and I have now sent the text of the message alone successfully. The original message had 3 attachments, I have now tried sending each one separately, 2 of them went successfully the third produced a version of the error (see my previous post).
This third attachment was a very brief email (just the From: To: and Subject lines completed, no text) that I had created and sent to myself to test for another problem. I saved it to My Docs, and inserted it as attachment along with the 2 other attachments. Perhaps one should not have done this with an email? maybe something in its Properties confused the process through the mail server? So when I finally sent it successfully in a Zip file the error was avoided.
anyway, with luck it won't recur. But thank you very much for your interesting reply.

Solved?: a knowledgeable friend has sent me this link: http://cr.yp.to/docs/smtplf.html
and says that in his experience " The CRLF error is surprisingly common and is nearly always associated with
forwarding an email which had been successfully received ... I could only conclude that the original email had become corrupted in transit."

NOT SOLVED YET sorry, it is much more complicated:
All mails I send out of OE from either bt or gmail accounts, are sent with bt smtp server: mail.btinternet.com . Outgoing mail is not scanned by AVG n any case, and the problem occurs whether AVG email scanner is enabled or not.
All the HTML mails that I have created and sent to myself at least for the past month, whether from bt account to gmail or vice versa, or just bt to bt, cause error 451 etc when forwarded as attachments after I have received them.
BUT the problem does not occur when the original, forwarded email was written in Plain text, even if the mail in which it is forwarded is HTML.
Also, those same HTML mails that later cause the error when forwarded after they have been received, can be forwarded as attachments OK from the Sent box, but not from the Inbox after receipt.
But both HTML and plain text mails other people have sent me CAN be forwarded OK as attachments from either account.
Mails sent to myself from the BY Yahoo and gmail webmail can both be forwarded again in OE to bt without any error (but those from bt to bt end up in BT Yahoo spam folder, until manually checked as "Not Spam").
Is something in the bt smtp server causing the problem, since all mails I send from OE go through that server ...?
